HOSPICE NEWS October 2021 - We celebrated #HospiceActionWeek! - Lindsey Lodge Hospice
Welcome from the Chief
Welcome to our very ‘yellow edition ‘ of Team Talk, what a
fantastic week we had celebrating Hospice Action week, a week
where hospices up and down the country celebrate the valuable
work that is undertaken and we give thanks to all those
involved in making this happen.

A special thanks to our staff and volunteers for supporting the
week and dressing in yellow throughout the entire week. A big
thank you to our patients who were also sporting yellow and
were very creative, even planting yellow pansies as part of the craft sessions and a rendition
of ‘yellow submarine’ sung in music therapy.

Our volunteers and catering staff sported yellow aprons made for the occasion and served
‘yellow’ afternoon tea specials. With retail outlets connected through their yellow shop
windows we had some very creative displays showcased- a truly great week for us all and
some amazing donations from our local businesses and donors. Well done and thankyou
everyone –it was great fun and a privilege to be a part of hospice care.

It's half term with many staff enjoying some well-deserved holidays and our children’s party
featured in this edition was a great idea of our new fundraising assistant Courtney Deans,
thanks to Courtney and the fundraising team for hosting this enjoyable event attended by
over 140 children and parents – the next generation of hospice supporters - how lovely is

Best wishes
Karen Griffiths

Hospice Action Week 2021
We celebrated #HospiceActionWeek
this month and turned North Lincolnshire
yellow in support Hospice UK’s national
Hospice Care Week.

Shops turned their windows yellow,
yellow themed afternoon tea was served,
aprons were made, awareness days
held, yellow was worn and we even had
a performance of Yellow Submarine from
our Wellbeing patients, which you can
view here.

We held a cycle challenge in reception,
which saw staff and volunteers bike
miles to raise funds and awareness
for Lindsey Lodge. We’d like to say a
special thank you to Volunteer Jeff and
Finance Assistant Bev Stanbridge for their
fantastic contribution during the week.

It was fantastic to see so much
support throughout the week from the
local community, our staff, volunteers
and patients – a huge thank you to
everyone for supporting our very first
